And what better way to celebrate than featuring a few of my favorite blogging daddies?
"Summer Has Officially Started" - sisters
In case you're not familiar with this daddy's blog- go check out his ENTIRE ARCHIVES. Seriously, some of the best photography of anyone's kids you'll ever see. This dude is seriously clever.
"Fishing = Happy" - EduDad
EduDad writes about his own strained relationship with his father, and learning to find common ground. As always, short and sweet... very, very sweet.
"For A Bunch of X Chromosomes, There Sure Are A Lot of 'Why's'" - The Kopp Girls
Kyle remains one of my favorite bloggers. His twin girls are the same age as mine, and his singleton daughter is over six months old now, I believe! And I *love* reading about how solicitous of her the twins are, and all about the things his twins do... because it's kind of a mirror into my own life, with every single detail changed. And this post? Yup. Sounds like many of my days.
"Small Bump" - The Daddy Dialogues
Brandon does this awesome thing where he introduces his readers to new music and movies and whatnot. It's just another way he manages to prove on a regular basis that he's cooler than me. That said, this whole post is going to make you cry. You know, unless you have no heart.
"Sometimes" - Dad of the Decade
This post is more than a week old, but you should still read it. It's another vignette in the story of DotD first year with his daughter, who you should know is now a remarkable ten year old. Knowing that makes a lot of his posts bearable. What he has gone through, though, should humble and horrify any parent. He has done it with remarkable strength, and is reliving it now with a remarkable gift for telling a story.
"How Much Independence is the Right Amount of Independence for Kids?" - A(n) (Un)Common Family
